I have been meaning to blog for so long about so many things, I can no longer remember what they all are, or pick which ones to talk about.

SO we work our way backwards.

I read an book that you all need to read. Or rather that you all need to live. I am doing my best to keep at it. It is called The Flinch and it is available for free on amazon as a kindle book, of course all you need to read it is to download the app or have an amazon account and use the cloud reader.

It is a challenging book that tells you to get over irrational fear that keeps us from living how we want to, and it tells you to stand in a cold shower. click the link, I made it easy. Its an opportunity to work hard and live better, I suggest you take it if you need to.

Last week I was house sitting for a family while they were on vacation, and I had some adventures.

I have practiced my chicken wrangling skills, and now I am rather fond of them. Doesn't take much for me to like something that is alive.

I also practiced my skate boarding back and forth skills, it was quite fun.

And I made this painting, which is now hanging in my living room.

I  am trying to share with you the things that I did when I wasn't writing, because that is somewhat what a blog is for.  Sharing and inspiring.  So I hope this is somewhat inspiring, other wise I'm just talking about myself , which is silly. 

I chalked up my porch and walkway yesterday, but mostly I am posting this because those are my sunflower plants you see there. And I want to share them with you as they grow. and eventually bloom.

My summer is proving lonelier and more challenging than I would like. But I hope for growth, which is all I can ask for.

How is your summer?


  1. Inspiration can't get much better then your pictures... (this is the moment when I sigh and say "I hope that someday my camera and I will find ourselves such masterpeices...").

    God bless!

  2. My summer started off amazing with you here ;) Now I have finished a week of camp and a week of holiday and I do not like being alone and working alone. I like being with and working with a team. I am also jealous of my, what to call him, who is working right now doing what I went to school and trained to do and I am not. AHHHHHHHHHHH! so frustrating. But God has me here for a reason and I think it is to work out my issues with loneliness. I love you and love reading your blog! Also Flinch was great!!!

  3. I love your photos, Sara. Isn't skateboarding amazing? I have an irrational fear of chickens.
    This Summer was difficult. I had to grow up in so many ways, and there was a lot growing pains.

    Love you,


And out of the void a voice came.
